U.S. Air Force "Shades of Blue" Jazz Ensemble with UW-L's Premier Jazz Combo
Date: Sunday, March 11, 2018
The Shades of Blue Jazz Ensemble is a group of 18 professional enlisted musicians whose repertoire ranges from traditional big band jazz, to bebop and swing, to modern jazz. At one of their concerts you are just as likely to hear the music of contemporary composers as you would the classic sounds of Count Basie or Glenn Miller. Several of the band's members are also gifted composers and arrangers, and their compositions are often featured in concert.
The band has backed many jazz greats such as Tex Benecke, Denis DiBlasio, Jamey Aebersold, Mike Smith, Bobby Shew, and Allen Vizzutti, just to name a few. Furthermore, the ensemble is often requested for featured performances at jazz clinics and festivals throughout the country.
Whether performing for a head of state, before a capacity crowd in northern Wisconsin or for our troops at home and abroad, the Shades of Blue reflects the heritage and pride of our great nation and the United States Air Force.
